HELPING THE BEES
We donate 5% to helping Bees survive.
Bees and pollinators are in danger.
Bees and pollinators make food possible, make health possible. The greatest threat to their survival comes from
chemicals used in agriculture. That's why we only use organic ingredients in our products.
We support organic farmers.
Our teas contain 100% certified organic ingredients forever free of hazardous chemicals found in conventional pesticides, fungicides and fertilizer. Let's all grow abundant food in union with nature rather than at war with it. Our future depends on it.
HOW WE BEGAN
Hippocrateas began as part of a personal healing experiment back in 1991. You see, I was struggling with health and skin issues that weren't getting better, no matter what I tried. I finally gave up on doctors, and as a last resort, started to eat organically. I also made my own medicinal herbal tea made with herbs I chose from the herbal section at the Green Earth.
I was shocked at how quickly my health turned around. It was night and day! In fact I became aware of Hippocrates famous words at this store, "Let Food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food." Perhaps no truer words have ever been spoken. Eventually I went on to continue my studies of natural healing while working as an assistant to Dr. Honey and other healers.
"Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food."
Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine
Discover the secrets the food industry has been hiding!
Secrets that impact Your Health!
The Green Handbook, Book One gives you full access to jaw-dropping information thoroughly documented with scientific
facts, research, and shocking evidence!
The vision for this book developed as I was first learning the incredible ways the right food can turn people's health around, in particular, my own. Could preventing and healing from disease really be as simple as Hippocrates said?
"Let food by thy medicine, and medicine by thy food."
Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine.
I was in such awe with this concept and how it could change people's lives that my dreams were filled with hidden messages. Eventually after 6 or 7 nights, I realized the message being sent, and what I had to do: write a book about food that heals.
Well here it is, all 246 pages-- just in case one might think this stuff is made up, there are 695 endnotes to reference.

HAND CRAFTED RECIPES
Hippocrateas creates small batch, hand crafted
organic herbal infusions designed to restore,
nourish, and protect. All of our herbal recipes are unique and designed in house, and not found anywhere else.
We also now provide organic fair trade certified
traditional teas, many with special herbal notes added.
Our teas are 100% organic, free of GMOs and never with any sugar added or anything artificial, just 100% goodness.
Packaging matters. That's why our teas are provided in glass mason jars that are reusable and collectible. We don't use any toxic materials in any step of our processing. Our labels are designed with recycled kraft paper and nontoxic glue. We've actually moved away from labeling the jars to save even more paper,
so just the lids will have the label.
And if you wish to have your tea in tea bags we only use unbleached biodegradable tea bags free of glue, adhesives and plastic! Our teabags may not be fancy like some of the nylon ones you'll find by other commercial tea brands, but we care more about doing right by the environment than looking fancy. We keep it simple and natural, good for you good for bees! To us, if it doesn't biodegrade and isn't compostable we won't use it. To us, every step matters; we don't overlook even the basics. We are committed to your health as well as the health of all creatures on this planet.
Hippocrateas will always only be made with plants grown as nature intended. Our teas will never contain hazardous synthetic chemicals found in fertilizer or pesticides, nor anything artificial, no added sugar, and definitely no GMOs.
We're dedicated to providing you and your family with teas and herbal infusions created from the best ingredients available. The best cannot be compromised, and the farming methods and entire process must be sustainable, organic and free of pesticides. Until we have our own organic farm,
we will continue to use plants from farms
and growers we trust.
Say NO to Pesticides means saying no to GMOs.

WHO WAS HIPPOCRATES?
"Let food by thy medicine and medicine be thy food." Known throughout the world as the Father of Medicine, Hippocrates is perhaps best known for believing in the power of nutrition to heal disease and illness.
The Hippocratic Oath of 'thou shall do no harm,' is named after him for a reason.
"It was Hippocrates who finally freed medicine from the shackles of magic, superstition, and the supernatural. Hippocrates collected data and conducted experiments to show that disease was a natural process; that the signs and symptoms of a disease were caused by the natural reactions of the body to the disease process; and that the chief role of the physician was to aid the natural resistance of the body to overcome the metabolic imbalance and restore health and harmony to the organism. Hippocrates was born on the island of Cos, off the southwest coast of Asia Minor, or present-day Turkey, around 460 B.C.
